Do I need an emergency dentist?
When it comes to oral health, we have a general rule at Dental Care Group: if it hurts, it’s an emergency! Even something as small as a chipped tooth can have severe consequences on your oral health if it’s not treated quickly or properly.
We offer immediate treatment options that alleviate your pain and fix whatever trouble your teeth are giving you – book an emergency appointment or contact us anytime for immediate support and advice.
When the hard enamel exterior of your teeth is damaged or broken, the sensitive nerves inside your tooth are exposed, causing tooth pain especially when chewing food.
Broken and chipped teeth can be the result of falling, biting into hard objects, or untreated tooth decay. Whatever the cause, visit your local dentist ASAP for appropriate treatment, which may include a filling or root canal to repair the damage.
Are you experiencing pain in or around your teeth? A broken tooth is just one potential cause of tooth pain. There are many reasons your teeth might be feeling sore: tooth decay, plaque, or infection.
Whatever the cause, drop by our dental clinic in Armadale to have your toothache looked at. Trust our experienced team of professionals to prescribe a treatment that gets to the heart of your tooth pain.
If you don’t follow a proper dental hygiene routine, you may start experiencing bleeding gums. Gum inflammation and bleeding is also an early symptom of gum disease.
Gum disease is common but preventable through effective dental hygiene. Our experienced team will be able to diagnose gum disease and prescribe treatments to relieve your symptoms and resolve your gum issues.
Wisdom tooth removal is one of the most common dental treatments, with approximately 85% of adults needing work on their wisdom teeth at one stage or another!
Wisdom teeth cause pain when they grow incorrectly. They can also be difficult to brush and floss properly, leading to infection. We recommend removing your wisdom teeth sooner rather than later if they are causing you issues.
Our 24/7 dental emergency hotline
Dental emergencies can be guarded against a number of ways:
- Regular visits to your dentist
- Wearing a quality mouthguard when playing high-contact sports
- A proactive dental hygiene routine
That said, we understand that dental emergencies can never be completely avoided.
Don’t ignore minor pain
When disaster strikes, don’t ignore your dental pain: delaying a visit to the dentist can result in something seemingly simple like a minor toothache quickly developing into a serious and painful infection. Don’t wait for the discomfort to become unbearable before taking action; contact your dentist at the first sign of pain!
